When's the last time the Red Wings scored a shorty with the opposing goalie in te net

 

According to NHL.com we scored two last season (Filppula and B. Stuart) and 5 in 10-11 (Helm x2, Datsyuk, Miller, Eaves), but honestly the last one I actually remember was the one Filppula scored on his birthday against Luongo in 2010.

Trade bait: Kindle, Cleary, Emmerton, Mursak, Abdlekader, we can package some of these guys to get a very good D-man like Bouwmeester from the Flames, he can be had because of his cap hit $6 mil and Flames slumping again this year.

yeah no way, we might get a 7th round pick tops for that package.

 

Brent Burns would have cost the Wings Filppula, Smith, and a first. That's the going rate for a top 2 defenseman. Probably more considering Filppula isn't on a long term deal like Setoguchi was.

Maybe Gordie Howe wants to play in another decade.  He's a right handed shot and could help this powerplay.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Psh Jason Williams is still out there. There's a good right handed shot.

We have some talent in Grand Rapids, what needs to be done is for Holland to get off his azz and make some trades (trades that DONT bring back former Wings) we have young players that are to valuable to just release but not getting any quality ice time and 2 young ones ready for the NHL NOW in GR (Nyquist-Tatar).
Young D-Men like Lashoff and B.Smith look very good, others like Kindle are not very impressive and K.Quincy looks like a major bust after letting him go on Waivers to keep Chelios in his last season, then trading a 1st round pick to get him back---OUCH!! he is playing like someone who should have been had for a 4th round pick!

That trade bait has zero points and one player on IR so far this season. That isn't getting you anything, let alone a top pairing d-man with an inflated contract. There's just absolutely no value in any of the guys you listed. The Red Wings don't have many assets to make a trade.

f*** it.  Let's trade everybody for goons.  2 decades of victorious dominance followed by 2 decades of penalized dominance. Let's give the rest of the league a whole new reason to hate us.

I wouldn't say that, Smith, Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan, Ferraro, Jarnkrok, Lashoff all have some value and would provide a very good player in return.

 

It's just the deal would have to involve a young player the Wings get in return, because we have to take a look for the long term, and mortaging the future to get a player that keeps us a playoff team for a year or two, and then leaves us would be a worst situation then hoarding, developing talent and trying for free agents.

Sorry for the typo I meant great*

Sadly, there aren't many pure goons left in NHL hockey.

Something you deemed impossible or at least unlikely several times, didn't you? ;)

 

Unlikely, yes. But Brunner could still play more solid defensively. He's improved, but apparently that went along with a decrease in his offensive appetite. If I could choose, I'd rather want to seem him just being a sniper, other than being a under-average-defensive-forward. Who doesn't. He'll have to find the right balance.

Because if they did, he would probably take a hitter away from Cindy, thus hurting his chances of winning an NCAA diving championship.  DUH!  C'mon man.

Does this mean we still suck? I didn't catch any of the game, in any way, shape, form. Need to know if I'm a sad/brooding/angry/resigned drunk tonight and into the wee hours of the morning,

@AnsarKhanMLive: Wings GK Ken Holland said they'll know more about Smith (shoulder) when he sees doctor Monday but said "looks like minimum 10-14 days.''
